The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) posted an update to the November 2015, “Compliance Guideline for Label Approval,” which details the types of labels and labeling that are required to be submitted to FSIS for approval, including specific examples of certain special statements and claims that are not generically approved. FSIS updated the guideline to include new examples of special statements and claims that must be submitted for approval; factual statements and claims that are generically approved; changes that can be made generically to labels previously approved with special statements and claims; and changes that cannot be made generically to labels previously approved with special statements and claims. The updated guideline also provides new information regarding the process to submit a label application for blanket approval. FSIS is inviting public comments on the revised guideline over the next 60 days.
